When I started looking to expand my creativity in ways to eat avocados that go beyond guacamole I discovered the idea of using avocado in place of butter or oil in a recipe. My initial thought was that the idea was a crazy one.

Being a person with a wanderlust for culinary adventure I quickly warmed up to the idea, deciding to include the fruit as a replacement for the oil in a gluten-free brownie.

After all, this wasn’t the first time I’d played around with a crazy and somewhat unconventional cooking idea. Years before having been out of eggs and needing to make a cake for a family get-together I had substituted mayonnaise for eggs in the batter. The cake turned out delicious! It ultimately generated loads of compliments from those who ate it. But, there were also those who couldn’t fathom the idea of mayo in a cake and were grossed out at the very thought of ever trying it. At the end of that trial, I determined that the positives outweighed the negatives resulting in many a mayo-infused cake in years since.

For those who may be skeptical, you’re going to have to trust me on this one. This better-for-you brownie replaces the oil with avocado in the mix to make a super nutritious, creamy decadent treat of a brownie that puts all other brownie recipes to shame.

  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 cup white Sugar
  • 8 ounces dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 Cup dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon table Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup gluten-free All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 ripe Avocados
  • 1/4 Cup Almond Butter

  • Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 15-minute at-a-time, stirring in between, until melted.
  • Add melted chocolate to the sugar-egg mixture a little to a time. Once incorporated, fold in cocoa, salt, vanilla and the gluten-free flour.
  • Cut avocados in half, removing the pits. Carefully score each half of the avocados cutting both ways to make small squares, scoop out avocado adding it to the batter and mix well with the electric mixer.
